What we want is maximize goal differential, and AK is at his best while facing weaker players, not being a defensive liability. Let more balanced players like a real top 6 handle the opposition's top guns. 'cause he can't.
This.

If we can add a top 6 winger, it will make our top 9 amazing with AK playing with Eller and Moen.

Cammalleri-Plekanec-Top6 (Laich for example)
Gionta-Gomez-Pacioretty
Moen-Eller-Kostitsyn
Darche-Desharnais-Pouliot/White/Pyatt

Markov-Gorges
Gill-Subban
Wisniewski-Emelin
Weber

Price
Auld/UFA

Somehow trade Spacek to a team.

That would be an awesome team. Great depth. One of the best defense in the East.
